People assume that to maintain a habit, you must break the bank. When you take on marijuana, some people around you may start to expect your financial plunge. But you do not need too much money to buy marijuana. You must not limit yourself to marijuana of the lowest quality marijuana either. There is an unusual match in the cannabis world, where some good quality cannabis strains go for low prices. Opt for these.
Factors Influencing Marijuana Prices
The price of marijuana depends on several factors. They are:
Taxation: Like alcohol, marijuana is taxed. Sellers tend to pass on the taxation costs to the customers. Taxation affects the prices of imported weed. So, when shopping for marijuana, conduct research to identify imported strains and possibly stay away from them.
Quality: Economics dictates that high-quality marijuana be sold at the highest prices. Strains with high CBD or THC concentration are sold at high prices. The same happens for strains with a high concentration of terpenes. Aesthetically pleasing strains also demand a high price.
Location: The location of the cannabis dispensary affects taxation and the supply or demand for cannabis. The demand for weed is higher in some parts of the country and low in others. The financial ability of consumers in a particular location also affects weed pricing. If there is only one store in a large city, the weed prices are high. If there are many dispensaries, the demand is low, and the prices are low.
Other factors that determine the price of weed include politics and environmental factors like droughts and wildfires.
